Langkawi 2011 - Temple Tree Resort
Temple Tree Resort is the more glamorous sister resort to Bon Ton and is right next door to the older resort. Unlike Bon Ton which consists of mostly timber Malay houses, Temple Tree is a collection of old houses of different legacy.
Like Bon Ton, it has a nice private pool for the guests.
There is also a smaller and quieter lap pool at another corner of the estate.
Some of the buildings are really beautiful exmaples of Colonial architecture.
There are quite a large number of villas on the property, each one formerly a family home or residential quarters that has been carefully restored. There are Chinese Houses, Penang Houses, a Black and White House, Colonial Houses, and many more. All of these were sourced from different parts of Malaysia and brought piece by piece to Langkawi, and all are great examples of their particular building type. So this resort is like an architectural museum of Malaysian vernacular and Colonial houses. It must have taken much effort and determination to get the project realized. No trip to Langkawi would be complete without a visit to this unbelievably beautiful resort.
